The page is rendered correctly by Konqueror and by Firefox 2.0 on Windows XP but not by Firefox 2.0 on Linux (Debian sid; tested with both Mozilla Firefox and Iceweasel 

Specifically, the page's bottom is rendered on top of part of the text.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox (or Iceweasel) on Debian SID
2. Go to

Actual Results:  
Page rendered with bottom on text

Expected Results:  
Bottom should be moved along page  to keep it off the text.

I tried to explain this away as a page-coding error and a function of font sizes, but Konqueror displays the page beautifully in many font sizes.

The error is that the height for the block containing the bulk of
the test is specified to 545px which causes overflow with a larger font:

<div style="padding: 0 14px; height: 545px;">

Konqueror has a bug if it's not respecting the specified height value.
